The Olympics women’s soccer competition moves into the knockout stage with an electric quarterfinal bracket, including the USWNT taking on Netherlands in a rematch of the 2019 World Cup final. The Americans have not been impressive thus far in the tournament but hope to get back on track against a Dutch squad looking like the best team at the Tokyo Summer Games. In other quarterfinal action, Sweden and host nation Japan meet up in what should be a tight contest.

Best Bet: Japan moneyline (+500)

This bet does carry some risk with Sweden being in great form, but the host nation has been steadily building a great women’s football program. Japan won the World Cup in 2011 and was a runner-up in 2015. Ultimately, the Tokyo Summer Olympics were supposed to be a crowning moment for the group. If there’s going to be a big upset, it might as well come from the host country. At +500, the upside on this bet is huge.
